What happened to him when he says “I experienced hell?” On the other hand, Sento’s problems have only gotten worse. Every time it looks like one war has ended another one suddenly begins.

The New York Toy Fair is currently in full swing. This is the time when companies create booths and give presentations to the press to show up what direction they are heading and what toys are coming out for the year. For toy geeks, it's like Christmas seeing all the new reveals. But one announcement that rocked the toy world was made a couple days prior. In probably the greatest shock to the fandom, it was revealed that Bandai of America and Saban Brands would be parting ways in 2019! After 25 years, Bandai of America will no longer make Power Rangers toys or import items from Toei Co's Super Sentai. Though it should be noted that Bandai of Japan will still continue to support Super Sentai with toys and merchandise. To put this announcement in perspective this would be like Hasbro di...

After the tragic and unexpected passing of Tsuru Hiromi as the original Bulma, a new actress has been hired to succeed her as the blue-haired engineer in the action anime series Dragon Ball Super. Singer and actress Hisakawa Aya has a list of credits as long as a kamehameha wave, adding her voice talents to a plethora of well-known geek properties over the years, including the previous chapter in the DB saga, Dragon Ball Z. Among her other works, she served as the voice of nerd queen Sailor Mercury in the original Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, the sword-wielding Xianghua in the Soul Calibur video games, and the sweet-toothed lion guardian Cerberus in Cardcaptor Sakura. Hisakawa has touched many other beloved properties in her long tenure, including Transformers, Oh My Goddess!, Dete...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 5

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 5

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
SODO set 5 makes a huge comeback after the lackluster set 4 for the Kamen Rider Build series. We have the return to form with 3 full figures (4 if you count the re-release of Night Rogue but I already have him from set 2 so we'll only be focusing on the new figures). First up, we have PhoenixRobo and RabbitTank Sparkling. These guys are fairly standard figures, though that's not a bad thing. Both have excellent detail, articulation, roughly the same amount of stickers, and they both maintain the body swap gimmick. Build's Sparkling form only has one slight deviation from the norm, being a fully painted face that is also one solid piece unable to split up while the rest of him can. Cross Charge, however, is a completely new type of figure to this line. Also split into 2 boxes, Cros...
Toy Review: LUPINRANGER VS PATRANGER’s  DX VS Changer, All DX Dial Fighters & Trigger Machines

Toy Review: LUPINRANGER VS PATRANGER’s DX VS Changer, All DX Dial Fighters & Trigger Machines

Reviews, Super Sentai, Toku, Toys, Uncategorized
The Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger toy line has started off on a fairly high note. The concept of one Morpher being utilized slightly differently by both teams is an interesting one and the VS Changer pulls this off well, almost feeling like 2 separate Morphers. The toy can be purchased in 2 separate ways as well. One being the Lupinranger version and the other being the Patranger version. The VS Changer itself doesn't vary from set to set but rather the included mecha, being either the Red Dial Fighter or Trigger Machine Ichigo. In the end, regardless of which version you purchase, all of the DX Trigger Machines and Dial Fighters are available for individual purchase separately. The gun, for the most part, is white with black and orange highlight, and clear re...

Plot twist. After Saban Brands, the handlers of the long-running Power Rangers franchise parted ways with original merchandise collaborators Bandai America, a new announcement was swiftly made, formally showing Hasbro Inc. their seat at the dynasty table. Promptly afterward came Hasbro's introduction to the latest incarnation of the Power Rangers legacy in the form of 2019's new season: Power Rangers Beast Morphers. It's a week of revelations for this undying brand. And this may be just the beginning. Electing Hasbro as the new shepherds for the franchise seemed like a no-brainer after we reviewed some dispiriting facts on the subject of Bandai America's business practices recently versus the comparatively outstanding performance of Hasbro in recent years. They've proven themselves as...

Well, this is an interesting turn of events. After a partnership that endured across two and a half decades, entertainment company Saban Brands has taken a page out of the playbook of their most famous characters and decided to sacrifice the zords. Bandai America, who has worked with Saban for 25 years to produce toys based upon the long-lasting Power Rangers brand, has jointly announced its separation from the media company. Fans are already reeling from the thought that the one other consistent name that carried alongside Saban's where its multicolored superheroes were concerned may soon fade into memory. But as the news comes as a surprise, it's also not one that causes much confusion either. Bandai and Saban's statement follows: "After a successful 25-year partnership building ...

With the clink of champagne glasses, we begin our newest entry into the long-running Super Sentai franchise. And as the 42nd incarnation of this ongoing saga, Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger has a lot to live up to. After achieving some success by mixing up their well-worn formula with the previous series, chief among my hopes for their latest endeavor was that they'd continue to reevaluate and reinvent their style, which sometimes felt a bit old hat. It's fitting then that we kick off the new story in a casino, as Lupinranger VS Patranger is in a gambling mood this premiere week. Let's zipline into the first action-packed episode and see if it paid off. We open with an exquisitely over-the-top shyster taking money from a desperate man who seems not to notice th...
